THE WOODLANDS TEXAS REAL ESTATE MARKET
THE WOODLANDS TEXAS HISTORY
In 1964 George P Mitchell purchased The Grogan Cochran Lumber Company's land including 2,800 acres that would become the first piece of The Woodlands Texas' property. In the course of 300 transactions, an additional 17,455 acres were obtained. In 1974, The Woodlands Texas celebrated its Grand Opening with its unveiling of The Village of Grogans Mill. The early 1980s brought in major companies like Eckerd Drug, and the Houston Advanced Research Center constructed its first building and announced a plan to develop a research campus establishing Research Forest. The 1990s saw a great growth with the addition of The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, Town Center, and the opening of The Woodlands Mall. Though it began as an exurban development and a bedroom community, it has also attracted corporations and has several corporate campuses, most notably Chevron Phillips, Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, Huntsman Corporation, Woodforest National Bank, Baker Hughes, CB&I, McKesson Corporation, Aon plc, Maersk Line, Safmarine, GeoSouthern Energy, ExxonMobil, Halliburton and SWN or Southwestern Energy Company. It won a Special Award for Excellence in 1994 from the Urban Land Institute.
